Hanauma Bay

Hanauma Bay is the most popular nature preserve in Oahu and a great place not only to stay the day at the beach but for snorkelers, beginning divers, and experienced divers alike. This bay is teeming with life and no boats are allowed so the waters are calm and protected.

The best part of the reef lies around 30 feet where you’ll see Spotted Eagle Rays, Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, schools of Convict Tangs, Sergeant Majors, Parrot Fish, Moray Eels and more
